Stripe shares or stock scams

There is a long history of bad actors attempting to scam retail investors by offering fake and fraudulent opportunities to invest in prominent private technology companies. Stripe does not offer opportunities for retail investors to invest in the company, nor does it offer equity investments through third-party brokers or other agents. As such, any third-party offer to purchase shares in Stripe stock is very likely a scam.

Stripe encourages anyone who receives outreach from third parties offering them opportunities to invest in “pre-IPO Stripe shares,” “Stripe shares,” “Stripe stock,” or “Stripe equity” to exercise caution. If you believe you were the target of such outreach, consider contacting your local law enforcement, securities regulator, or if in the US, the SEC to report the matter. You can read more about investment scams like these on the SEC and FINRA investor alerts page.
